Leonard spent his life outdoors working and playing. He enjoyed snowmobiling in the winter and hunting gophers in the summer and wild game in the fall.
Leonard could cut a mean rug, enjoying dancing with Carol at many of the community dances held around the country.
Over the past year Leonard had retired somewhat and enjoyed going for coffee on 'Coffee row' to visit. He liked his game of cribbage, watching the game shows on TV and anyone that stopped in was always welcomed with coffee and conversation.
